Video description
Beowulf! The tale of the baddest Geat to ever Geat.

Tolkien said that the Dragon in Beowulf is one of only two *true* dragons in all of literature - the other being Fafnir. The influence of both these dragons is very visible in a lot of our more modern fantasy: for instance, where Beowulf's Dragon inspired Smaug, o chiefest and greatest of calamities, Fafnir inspired C. S. Lewis to include that cursed bracelet thing that turned Eustace into a dragon in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. And I think we all know the badder of those two dragons, so I guess Tolkien - and, by extension, Beowulf - wins this round.
